Description

This walk takes you from Camping en Kampeerboerderij't Boerenerf through the green countryside between Maarn and Woudenberg. The first part of the route takes you through the rural area west of Woudenberg with its characteristic farms, meadows, old ditches and pollard trees. From the dike along the Woudenbergse Grift it is easy to see how the landscape here was divided into regular straight plots during the reclamation. The plots were marked by planting alder and willow trees, which are pollarded every year. Just above Maarn you walk into De Koeheuvels. Until the twentieth century, Maarn was surrounded by an extensive heathland. Only De Koeheuvels remains of this ancient landscape. Further on you walk through the woods on the edge of Landgoed Henschoten.
